About Curtis

Hi My name is Curtis C. I have a B.A. in Business Administration and a minor in Computer Science from Graceland University (1983). I am currently finishing my teaching degree in mathematics at Western Governors University. All math class done, just have student teaching to finish to get my public school license.

I have been teaching students for over 20 years. I was a Microsoft trainer for 5 years. I trained over 1000 students in network and software development (Visual Basic, Java and SQL Server. I was a certified Microsoft Engineer. Developer and trainer.

I have been tutoring students in math and computer programming for close to 10 years now. During this time I worked as a sub teacher in my local school district. I currently work as a professional math tutor and adjunct instructor at my local community college. I know that I would be able to help you, because I know everyone learns in different ways. When I tutor that is one of the first things I will try to figure out

I was also a martial arts instructor for 10 years. I got the must enjoyment when I was teaching the youth classes. I love to garden and run modal trains with my grand kids.

If you are unable to find a local tutor, I would be willing to do the tutoring online. References and complete resume are available upon request.

What my students say

"I was failing my math for liberal arts class. Curtis would not let me give up on myself. With his help I was able to earn a ‘C’ in the class." Joe S., Keokuk IA 5/28/16

"Curtis became my son's math tutor in the middle of 8th grade. My son has always struggled in math. Before starting tutoring my son was not grasping the concept the way the teachers were explaining them and he was very frustrated. When Curtis started tutoring him my son was getting D's in math. In a very short time he improved his understanding and was able to get B's and is more confident. He is now in ninth grade and has requested Curtis tutor him once again this year. My son says Curtis is patient, easy to work with, and explains math concepts to him in a way that makes sense to him. Curtis is flexible on days and times and is very professional. I would recommend him on all the above grounds." Teresa Burke 9-20-16 What co-works have to say: "Mr Clark's greatest strength is his ability to personalize curriculum." 10/15/15
